Chapter 340: The Snake and the Leopard Are the Threats
A male would leave his mark on a female after mating with her. He remembered seeing a snake tattoo on that female’s ankle, and he hadn’t seen any leopard tattoo on her.
Muir’s tone was cold. [All of you should know of the feral beasts. The snake beastman is one of them.]
The young eagles suddenly understood why the snake beastman was able to leave his spousal mark on the female. They were so furious that their nostrils flared.
[That leopard beastman hasn’t succeeded yet, has he? We must not let them go near the female!] The young eagles solemnly vowed. They had considered the leopard beastman a feral beast as well.
Muir flapped his wings and no longer paid attention to the group of children, who were now filled with the same bitter hatred towards his enemies. He flew towards the coconut grove.
Compared to the threat posed by the City of Beastmen, Muir was more worried about Bai Qingqing’s two mates.
Who wouldn’t want their loved ones all to themselves?
Any beastman would!
All males were the same, regardless of what tribe they were from. They were just more rational and willing to compromise compared to feral beasts. Any beastman would fight for their loved one if he had the opportunity.
It wasn’t easy for him to get this opportunity, and he might have the chance to be with Bai Qingqing alone. How could he give that up?
There was a long and narrow s.p.a.ce beside Muir’s nest. When Bai Qingqing woke up, that s.p.a.ce was filled with large green coconuts. There was also a small pile of brightly-colored fruits that she didn’t recognize.
Bai Qingqing had eaten a lot before she slept. The moment she woke up, she wanted to use the bathroom, but she didn’t know where Muir was.
Bai Qingqing held her stomach. Do I have to do it here?
Unable to hold it in any longer, she scrunched up her face, walked to the very edge, and looked down.
White waves crashed on the rocks beneath her feet.
Suddenly, Bai Qingqing heard a screech from above, frightening her so much that she stepped backward. Her foot caught onto the gra.s.s, blocking her other foot and sending her entire body flying forward.
“Ah!” Bai Qingqing’s screams were m.u.f.fled by the violent sounds of the waves.
Muir was worried upon seeing Bai Qingqing stumble about outside. When he saw her fall, he was frightened out of his wits and immediately dropped his prey to chase after her.
The prey fell into the ocean with a splash, creating small ripples in the water.
Muir was still shaken after he had placed Bai Qingqing safely in his nest. His wings wrapped around her body tightly and he pressed his chin against the top of her head, completely covering her with his body.
When Bai Qingqing felt the vibrations in Muir’s throat, she was reminded of the water slos.h.i.+ng about in her bladder, and her urge to pee grew stronger.
Bai Qingqing nudged the bird’s warm torso before saying in a m.u.f.fled voice, “I can’t breathe.”
Muir then let go of her. There was still panic in his eyes as he stared at Bai Qingqing.
He suddenly felt regretful. The female was too fragile. She could accidentally die at any moment, just like today.
He should have left a mate by her side so that there would be a beastman protecting her while he was out hunting.
However, when he looked at Bai Qingqing’s beautiful face—which was flushed because she was holding in her urge to pee—and experienced being the only person by her side, his heart began to waver once more.
I’ll see. Maybe Qingqing will get used to it in a few days.
Concerned about the food that had dropped into the water, Bai Qingqing crawled to the side. She then felt the nest shake slightly. Worried, she didn’t dare to crawl out further.
Muir calmed down even more. See, Qingqing’s learning how to avoid danger.
“Can we still find that prey?” Bai Qingqing asked as she held in her urge to pee, her bladder feeling like it was about to burst.
Muir’s heart warmed. He had spent close to ten years in the City of Beastmen and had interacted with many females. This was the first time he had come across a female who was so thoughtful towards a male.
Although little things like this didn’t matter to him, he couldn’t help but fall further in love with her.
